Wow, its been a long time

Sunday, March 01, 2009

Ok, yea....I got into a huge slump. One so big I just gave up really caring about any of it. This began, gosh I dont know, several months ago. I feel like I dont do anything except work, eat, sleep and work again. And Im not getting much sleep.

So here I am and Krissy decides she wants to join a gym, yes, it was MY suggestion, and so the only time we can go is Mon, Wed and Fri....and that involves getting up at 6:30 AM. Considering I work until usually 3 AM this means even less sleep for me....so anyways she says she wants to pay for me to have a membership....and i gotta tell you I was NOT leaping for joy about going into a gym where Barbie and every body builder in town goes and be stared at...nor was I excited to try to get on the equipment only to find Im to darned fat....

so anyways...we go....they give us a 2 week trial (free) and Im absolutely shocked to see that Krissy is really gung ho about it. I mean this is the woman that doesnt want to get up for CHRISTMAS, lol. So I go to my Dr and he hems and haws and says that he wants me to wait, something about the meds, anyways, I think he just wanted to milk money from me.

So anyways, Im told "no" and I still have to get up 3 mornings a week and drag my butt to the gym and watch Krissy....the thing is, the more I went, the more I wanted to use the gym, then I began to see changes in Krissy....BIG ones and i REALLY wanted to use the gym. SO I called my Dr and told them Id sign a release....so long story short...the Doc signed the waiver to allow me to use the gym.

That was 2 weeks ago this coming Wednesday....

Day 1)Wednesday - I did 5 min on the treadmill after finding out I dont have the leg strength to lift my leg over the recumbant bike......I HATE walking, if I liked walking I wouldnt be FAT.....grump grumble....grumble

Day 2)Friday- Have to go get my son, long drive, dont WANNA work out, but I do SIX minutes today and they add 3 of the strength machines, leg press, leg curl....and one other one, leg extention I THINK....and I could only do THREE reps....::sigh:: this is going to take forever....

Day 3) Monday- I do TEN minutes on the treadmill today! Woooooo! and I did TWELVE reps of my 3 machines! Go me!!

Day 4) Wednesday- I did ELEVEN minutes today......was talking to my "neighbor" (on the next treadmill) and lost track of time LOL. I did 15 reps and upped some of the weight on one of them... Woooooo!

Day 5) Friday- Ive been told to only weight once every 3 weeks, first think on Mondays, becz muscles retain water for up to 48 hours after a workout....also got a new diet plan....Added some upper body machines today and I did TWELVE minutes on the treadmill!!! The last two I upped my speed from 1.1 mph to 2 mph....then got off (no cool down) and daaaaang, I thought I was gonna pass out! I got scolded lol and told I MUST do a cool down.....who new.....now me...not like Ive taken care of me very often...

So anyways....on both fridays I got a protien smoothie...the first friday I was headed out to get my son and didnt want to give in the the call of McDonalds lol, I got the Almond joy one....and YUCK!....so this last Friday I got the tropical paradice one with a fat burner added and YUMMO! Oh my that was GOOD.

Sooooo....Im not really noticing anything, no real changes yet, but its only been a short time...I want to see changes, god I better see changes LOL...anyways, Im proud, I only gripe and complain a LITTLE bit about getting up....Im still working the hard long hours, so Im usually ready for a nap on Mon, Wed and Fri....and usually I take a short nap lol. Hey...whatever it takes tokeep going, you know?

So thats the readers digest condenced version for you......

I will try to keep updates more often lol
